Re: Who is this Aleese Bergan (sp) chick?

Yeah she is really good, and has been around for a long time because she is the commentator for the classic Venus / Hingis match US Open 2000, on my VHS. Don´t know why she does not commentate more often?

Elise Burgin. Once #22.

Read John Feinstein's Hard Courts for some good stories about her.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

Re: Who is this Aleese Bergan (sp) chick?

Yea I love Elise Burgin too. She used to be a player back in the 80's (maybe early90's) I think she got into the top ten in doubles. I really like her style of commentary too; she does a lot for sky sports in the UK for the US Open (or used to)

Re: Who is this Aleese Bergan (sp) chick?

Oh i love her duing the US open on Sky. Always adds something to the commentary.

I think she commentated on the Seles vs Hingis tour champs in 2000.

Elise Burgin is a very good commentator. Unbiased, knows her stuff. She is always welcome with me in the commentating booth.

Re: Who is this Aleese Bergan (sp) chick?

Elise was a contemporary of Martina Navratilova's and Chris Evert's. A few years younger than them, perhaps, but same general era--late 70's/early 80's. I have some footage of a Nav/Austin match from one of the Cali tournaments in '80 or '81 where Elise is actually commentating with Bud Collins, so she goes back a long ways.

Hmmm she's okay I suppose but to me she's a Tracy Austin wannabe.

Re: Who is this Aleese Bergan (sp) chick?

haven't heard her commentate but played in the 80's....played against Hurricane KElesi in Brisbane in 1987...v young Kelsei, Kelesi bitched and whinged her way though the match- Burgn didn't say a thing- then in the 2nd set, Burgin politely questioned a call and HElen screamed at her and called her a fat bitch, Elisse cried......I was shocked ot see a few years later they teamed up in doubles, maybe saw they got to the final in Canada. She couldn't be worse as a commentator than a lot that are around at the moment.....all Austin does is revert whatever is being said back to her...no good
